This cute little rolly polly owl from Art Impressions, called “Beanie Whoot” screamed action wobble to me. So I thought I would combine it with a mostly white background shaker and make a whimsical Christmas gift card holder for my niece.
For the shaker, I used my Becky Higgins Project Life fuse tool and a plastic project life pocket. I filled it up with clear seed beads, white, teal and iridescent sequins, and snowflake confetti. For the card front, I used the larger die from the Pretty Pink Posh Scallop Frame Die Set and the Memory Box Birch Trio Die. To keep the attention on the owl and the action components of the card, I cut all these pieces from plain white card stock.
Then for the centerpiece, I used the following Copic colors for Beanie Whoot:
Owl: (brown parts) E55, 57 and 59; (white parts) W0 and W1; and (beak and claws) Y15, 17 and 38
Hat with dotting technique for texture: B00, 01, 02 and 05 with 0 for highlights
For sparkle and shine, I added Icicle Stickles on the hat pom pom, and Glossy Accents for the eyes, beak and claws.
Then to add some fun, I fussy cut out Beanie Whoot and popped him up on a DIY action wobble, which I made with some card stock scraps and a thin wire that I wrapped around a marker to make into a spring.
Lastly, to make this card a gift card holder (because a 21 year old really wants cash more than things an aunt would buy, right? – LOL), I made a little pocket inside the card. To make the pocket a little more decorative, I punched the top edge using the border punch from the Martha Stewart Aspen Punch Around the Page Punch Set. I stamped out the “Merry Christmas” (I love the fonts) from the Prima “Merry Nice” stamp set.
The following is a short shaker wobbler demo video:
